The Horsenecks in Ireland, 5-10 Feb. 2016

Thanks to Uri Kohen for this release on the imminent visit by the Horsenecks (also on Facebook):

Westport Folk and Bluegrass Festival are delighted to promote another tour for a great international act.

Horsenecks are a hard-hitting transcontinental old-time and early bluegrass string band. Irish bluegrass fans might remember some of the band members, as they were part of the Loose Moose String Band who headlined the Westport festival in 2014.

The band will tour around the country in the first weeks of February:

Fri. 5th: The Red Room, Cookstown, Co. Tyrone, 8.30 p.m.
Sat. 6th: The Greyhound Bar, Kilkee, Co. Clare, 9.30 p.m.
Sun. 7th: Levis Corner House, Ballydehob, Co. Cork, 7.30 p.m.
Mon. 8th: Matt Molloy's, Bridge St., Westport, Co. Mayo, 7.00 p.m.
Tues. 9th: Matt Molloy's, Bridge St., Westport, Co. Mayo, 7.00 p.m.
Wed. 10th: Myles K. McCann's, 6 Bridge St., Omagh, Co. Tyrone, 10.00 p.m.

Uri also sends a YouTube taste of what is to come: the Trevor Stuart composition 'Henry King's reel' played by half the band, Gabrielle and Barry. The Horsenecks will also take part in this year's FOAOTMAD old-time festival at Gainsborough in England (12-14 Feb.).
